Used it only a few times but it works very smooth with gri gri and does not twist when belaying with it like some other ropes I tried.
Super fast delivery and the rope works great!!! Can't wait to use it more!!!
Probably one of the best ropes to start sport climbing. It runs through gri gri so smoothly and you can handle it very easily to pass it through sets.
Only used it for few times, but it seems good
its the perfect go to rope for everything. i used many different ropes but belaying a lead climber with my grigri+ has always been a pain but with this rope its no problem, runs so smooth and effortless thru the grigri without annoying lock ups. its also very soft and easy on the hands. just used it a few times so dont know how durable it is yet
